Arrow Image A guide to get newbies on their feet to learning to hack

I hear "teach me to hack" more than I hear "What would your advice be for a newbie to start learning to hack?". I figured I would cater to those newbies and tell those others that say "teach me to hack, bitch" to f**k off.

My advice for newbies who are yearning to learn to hack is simple, it doesn't involve the most high-tech vulnerabilities, or even the most high-tech computer with the fastest connection.

When I started out, I had a 56k modem with 128MB Ram and 40 gig Hard drive.

Anyway, here is my advice.

Always look through Google before you ask questions, If you cannot find it on Google, only THEN do you ask in the boards. If you ask in the boards, please, PLEASE give a detailed description of what you are trying to do, trying to learn. When I see posts in the real 1 board saying "How do I do this" I just skip them. I am sorry, but you haven't looked hard enough.

If I see one asking information about how a JavaScript injection works or what is the use of robots.txt or even something that asks an intelligent question that actually helps me pinpoint your problem, I will read it.

To start, a newbie should go to: http://www.w3scho. . . and learn html and JavaScript. After you have mastered those, go to and learn PHP. After these are done with, you are ready to learn a computer programming language.
My opinion usually is Perl because of its ability to be web or computer programming, but python does well also.

After you master something like those, go on to C or C++. By this time I would expect you have learned the basics of hacking.

Every hacker, whether they are black hat or white hat, is looking for knowledge, if you want to learn to hack, you need to READ. Read anything you see, learn it, pass it on. You need to be willing to learn to become a hacker.

Since every hacker needs some sort of tools, I recommend the following:
(All are found on Google)

1) Nmap
2) Linux
3) Firefox
4) MD5Library on AIM for MD5
5) Cain&Abel (disable Abel though, contains a backdoor)
6) Snort
7) Olly DBG
8) NetCat with CryptCat
9) John The Ripper

Don't get Sub7 or Prorat or any other RAT, they are too destructive and they cause you to get infected along with your victim. (they contain backdoors in the coding)NetCat is sufficient.

These are the basics of what will be useful, as you get more advanced, more tools will be of use.

Learn, Teach. Have Fun.

Well written but you say not to get any RATs because they contain backdoors...well Abel is a backdoor. so you are kinnda contradicting yourself. Well written though.. 7/10

good article, but sadly you can't fix stupid.

AldarkHawk: Unless he updated his article, I don't really see where he contradicted himself. But perhaps we see it in a different context, but either way, I think you should've specified what time of 'hacking' they were going into, because if you're going to start 'hacking' applications, than PHP can suck my dick because it would be useless.

i disagree with "every hacker needs some sort of tools" ive been hacking for six months now and have never used anything but firefox. i have found exploits on three or four sites without any programmes.

Is it just necessary to learn basic python to get started with, or is there any specific libraries that would help? I am still just learning web scripting languages like HTML and JS. I know bit of python and more of C and C++.
